This Sunday at Mountain View, April 12th, 2015

It looks like we came out of the cold and into the storms! We think the weather might be good this Sunday, but if you need a ride anyway, call 905-575-1544. Don’t hang up if the phone delays, that’s just the switching to our call-forwarding. You most likely will actually speak to a human! In any event, contact us, leave a message on the phone, or here, or at info@mountainviewchristian.com

We worship together in all generations, but children will leave during the sermon time. With the many children in our services, we really “make a joyful noise to the Lord!” (yes, that “joyful noise” phrase is actually in the Bible! Look at Psalm 95:1-2)

This Sunday or worship in song will be lead by Daniel J. Josh C. will be bringing the communion meditation, and the sermon text is Ephesians 3:1-13.

Scriptures in worship will be:

Psalm 133

Acts 4:32-35

1 John 1:1-2:2

John 20:19-31

If you are not a Christian, come and see what the resurrected Lord Jesus is all about. Think about this:

2 Corinthians 5:21 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

We sinned, but Jesus receives the punishment. We do not receive the justice of God; Christ does, for us. But we must respond to Christ’s call. Come and learn how.

If you are a Christian, and need a place to hear the Word of God preached, and need to be challenged in your walk with Christ, please consider visiting us.

It’s Palm Sunday at Mountain View!

6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. 8 Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” 10 And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” 11 And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2001), Mt 21:6–11.

Hosanna means, “Save us, now!” Ever felt that way, that you need out right now? 

Jesus will save you–come, sit under the teaching of Jesus through the Bible, and learn what it means to be saved.

It’s warming up outside, and if you don’t set your clocks ahead one hour, you’ll be late! The worship band today is Zeke, Paul, Reuben and Scott. There will be a new song, that’s really old.

Ephesians 28–9 [widescreen]

Sermon text: Ephesians 2:8-10.

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 111 [fullscreen]

Full text:

Ephesians 1:11–14 (ESV)

11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.

The aftermath.
